Commanders,

We had such a hard time picking a favorite for the Name That Ocean contest that we narrowed it down to three and decided to seek your help! Please vote on your favorite. Afterward, I will let you know why we put these up for a vote. Trust me, this was very hard and we had so many good names to choose from, so your help will be greatly appreciated!

You have until midnight on the 31st of July to vote!

Vote away!


GM Rikoo

I can't believe that "The Great Cleavage" didn't make the final vote. Thumbs Down

I ask that everyone vote for "The Sea of Mercy" as a reminder that we need to be merciful in the future wars of illyriad. Also, it could be the bases of the story of a factions and/or a reason for a tourny.

I'm really hoping The Bitter Sea makes it.  I love the reference to Illy's history.  Even if maybe the forum mods were not overly fond of The Bitter Sea when it was actually around, I think it was a good thing to have -- people need a place to vent, and I think it contained a lot of the animosity so the snarkiness didn't spill over so much to the rest of the forum.

Since we can't have the real Bitter Sea, at least we can have an in-game memory of it.

It was the name of a forum section where players were allowed to speak (type) or discuss things that would not normally be allowed by the rules. It was closed.

GM Rikoo, I think you are incorrect in your memory regarding The Bitter Sea.  It was also bound by forum rules -- there was never a statement that it was not, and Bitter Sea discussions were moderated -- however it was a place where people could complain, vent, etc. about other players, about Illy politics and about game development.

Now rather than being relatively contained in a single place, that happens everywhere on the forum.

The Bitter Sea was also a place where opinions about conflicts, issues etc were also voiced. Much of our history was wiped out when the Sea was closed.

The point is that much of the behavior that was allowed there was not allowed anywhere else, and would not be allowed now. There was very little moderation until Luna was hired, anyway. If the content of the Bitter Sea was not breaking rules or did not eventually break rules it would still be around. I will explain more about it after the voting.
